today. both president obama and mitt romney reviewing notes and strategying with their teams ahead of wednesday's face-off in denver. one of three that have the potential to alter the court of history. doug brinkley is joining me now, doug, good to see you thank you for joining us. is this a do no harm debate in or does each candidate have something to prove on wednesday? >> barack obama he and hiss choice would haven't the debate. after all today's polls are up nine points in ohio. it looks like these debates are just the rapids the president has to go through. if he didn't have them, it would be fair sailing. so for mitt romney, these debates are essential. he's going to have to show that he's presidential. so far when he went to the olympic and maybe gaffed and he stumbled with that 44%. they're not sure they can live with the guy for four years so mitt romney has to really be the one that comes out the winner. he's got to score. >> there was a time between the famous kennedy-nixon tapes that there were no televised debates. why are they considered so vital now? >> well, the ken
the dynamite to denver? a little over the a day for the presidential debate. both president obama and mitt romney getting ready for their first face-off tomorrow night in colorado. doing the hefty lifting on the number two on the ticket and the candidates' wives. mitt romney is in denver where last night he tried to put the kibosh on predebate winning. >> people want to know who is going to win, who will make the biggest difference and scoring of winning and losing. in my view it's not so much winning and losing or even the people themselves, the president and myself, it's about something bigger than that. these debates are an opportunity for each of us to describe the pathway forward for america that we would choose. >> his rival president obama who is in day number three of debate camp in nevada dropped by one of his own campaign headquarters. >> it was very nice, you know. although, basically, they are keeping me indoors all the time. it's a drag. they are making me do my homework. >> despite the best efforts, the drum beat is building. it's getting louder and louder with great debate e
, as romney plays face the camera doing his best damage control over that 47% video. >> president obama and i both care about poor and middle class families. the difference is my policies will make things better for them. >> and, cut. very good. that was marginally convincing. maybe a little more -- tell you what here's an example of a politician speaking this afternoon in bowling green with genuine authenticity and commitment. >> my opponent may think it's fair that someone who makes $20 million a year like he does pays a lower rate than a teacher, i disagree. i don't think that's fair. i don't think it helps grow our economy. i refuse to ask middle class families to give up their deductions for owning a home or looking after their kids just to pay for another millionaire's tax cuts. we're not going to do that. >> dear me. did we mention ohio voting starts in six days? i'm delighted to be joined now by former ohio governor ted strickland with us from columbus. good afternoon, sir. >> good afternoon. >> governor there is still plenty of time for mr. romney to make
. >> president obama and i both care about poor and middle class e difference is, my policies will make things better for them. >> and, cut. very good. that was marginally convincing. maybe a little more -- tell you what, here's an example of a politici speaking this nuauti an in bowlingreen wit come >> my opponent may think it's fair that someone who makes $20 million a year, like he does, pays a lower rate than a teacher, i disagree. i don't think that's fair. i don't think it helps grow our economy. mi t give up their deductions for owning a home or looking after their kids just to pay for another millionaire's tax cuts. we're not going to do that. >> dear me. diwe mention ohio voting starts in sidays? i'm delht to be joined now by former ohioer t strickland with us from columbus. good afternoon, sir. >> good afternoon. >> governor, there is still plenty of time for mr. romney to make roads in your fair state, but why do you think he's doing so badly? is it because he had done nothing save the a industry? is it because he says he doesn't care about half the population of the country? or is
in the cut line that both romney and president obama addressed the conference, but avoided directly attacking each other. more from the papers and the speeches, but we want to hear from you now. angelica, republican line. caller: i am in full support of president obama. i like the way he handles foreign policy, he is measured and careful of what he says. when i look at mr. romney, i am so sick and tired of the fear and warmongering and am afraid that he would start another military conflict in the middle east. as a voter, on that topic alone, president obama has my vote, because i do not believe that we and the world can afford another military conflict on this planet. thank you for allowing me to talk this morning. have a good day. host: thank you for your comments this morning. round rock, texas. caller: i agree with the republican that just called in, i also support the president as far as foreign affairs go. mr. romney used to belong to a chinese organization, it was an oil conglomerate. they were supporting iran. in 2011, mr. romney separated himself from these chinese oil conglomerate.
think it goes -- it cuts both ways. i've heard from liberals who said i hope obama hasn't peaked too early. i really hope people still go and vote. i think it can cut both ways on that. i think it can also rally conservatives to say there's problems here, republicans need us. i think that there will be some voters, maybe, who might fall out. there might be some people who get more enthused. and i think, though, that there are -- i'm not sure what the, you know, what the science behind that might be. but i think that it can cut both ways. >> how about the money aspect of this from the super pacs? because might they, particularly in swing states, if you see mitt romney behind, might the super pacs say, okay we're not going to put our money behind the presidential race, instead we'll go to the house and senate races in those states? >> i think you can see that. i think we may have seen some of that from crossroads gps who really astoundingly when i look back at the numbers that we get from the ad tracking firm that we partner with, they were completely dark in august. i was just shockin
obama, wchashis dat f years ago, the focus was the war. in fact, both wars. >> do you, senator mccain, much has been said about the lessons of vietnam. what d you see as the lessons iraq? >> i tnk the lesf iraq are very clear that you cannot have a failed strategy. thanks to this great general david pa ttr,hey are succeeding and winning in iraq. >> whether we should have gone into the war in the first place. six years ago i stood up and opposed this war. we hadn't finished the job in afghanistan. we hadn't caught bin laden. we hadn't put al qaeda to rest. and as aconsnc i thought that it was going to be a distractio now, senator mccain and president bush had a very different judgment. >> so that was this date, 40 days out from the election in '0and 40 days out from the election in '04. in '04 the campaign was consume e of our wars. 40 days out from the election in '08, in the midst of the financial meltdown the campaign was consumed with both of the wars. now it's 2012 and we're 40 days out from the election this year and we are not quite as consumed with that issue, but we are st
they can't -- it's -- the margs inhese stasre s t they need both obama to go down as they're going up. >> all right, mike. and apparently you've been deputized by "sports illustrated." you're here to reveal the new cover of "sports illustrated." >> what? >> there's a lot of goo news, good buzz inside the beltway. it's on the cover of "sports illustrated" this week. they're calling washington/baltimore america's unlikely new sports capital. seth davis, lanny son is writing in "sports illustrated" abo the beltway as the new spos surpower. we have the washington nationals tied with the reds for the best team in baseball. we have great hope for the redskins with this quarterback, rg3 which "spos illustrated" i hope he's better than that. >> yeah. it's definitely a moment. i can tell you as a yankee fan, the orioles are frightening at this point. >> aren't they something? >>ike allen, thanks so much. >> have a good week. >> a point of personal privile here. >> please. >> i want to hear about one story today and one story only. and i want to know what's going on in kansas. mika, do we have
have agreement. both of us think it was wrong for president obama to snubbed the prime minister of israel. >> i do not know what his schedule is. you characterized -- rhetoric about snubbing, been weak, i do not know what the situation was for the president's office, his schedule, what the israeli prime minister's schedule was. if it is possible, you should always meet with foreign heads of government you so what scheduling conference the think would be sufficient? he declined requests from the prime minister to meet when the prime minister was in new york. my understanding is that during that same week he went on david letterman and "the view." >> at the same time? you are using that as an excuse? >> we do not even know. you do not even know. the slander our president and not the -- even know his schedule. >> i am describing his conduct. >> i do not know david letterman's personal schedule or the president's, but we have come to the bottom of a half- hour. much more in the next 30 minutes. >> thank you. a spirited, sometimes fiery debate between our two than senate candidates.
and then samuel l. jackson did the audio book. they both just redid it except for obama. hearing samuel l. jackson curse -- >> in his case, he's intimidated. he doesn't have to do it. thank you, joel stein and lizz winstead with her famous friends. >>> when we come back, predictions about the debates that start next week. you're watching "hardball," a place for politics. our abundant natural gas is already saving us money, producing cleaner electricity, putting us to work here in america and supporting wind and solar. though all energy development comes with some risk, we're committed to safely and responsibly producing natural gas. it's not a dream. america's natural gas... putting us in control of our energy future, now. tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 at schwab, we're committed to offering you tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 low-cost investment options-- tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 like our exchange traded funds, or etfs tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 which now have the lowest tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 operating expenses tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 in their respective tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 lipper categories. tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 lower than spdr
think he's very good. i think both of them are playing the game. president obama was saying something the other day, i'm not really a good debater. gee -- >> they're both very, very smart guys. >> if you talk about the top 1%, intellect, these guys are in the top 1%. there's nothing to choose between them on intellect. there's a lot to choose between them on policy. i hope they get into a good discussion of policy because from my point of view i think romney would get the better of that but i'm not sure. we'll see. >> we looked at past debates. some folks seem to get into trouble when they start debating over the debate rules themselves. i want to play a quick montage of stuff. >> i have to let senator obama respond. go ahead and respond. >> wait -- >> you just spoke for two minutes. >> you said two things. >> you can dispute that but let me finish. you went on for two minutes. let me finish. >> i'm speaking. i'm speaking. i'm speaking. i'm speaking. you get 30 seconds. this is the way the rules work here, is that i get 60 seconds and then you get 30 seconds to respond, right? anderso
have reported, president obama and governor romney are both campaigning in ohio today. and with early voting an option in dozen of states this year many americans could cast their ballots before the presidential debates even begin. shannon bream is live in washington tonight. what's the thinking about who stands to gain from this early voting, shannon? >> well, shepard, the president dominated in early voting in 2000 2008. it wasn't even close. political experts like michael mcdonald who is a professor at george mason thinks it's going to be a whole lot closer this time around in 2012. >> republicans are more enthused than in 2008. so that's -- there will be motivation among republicans to vote. plus, we have a romney campaign that's investing in early voting much more so than the mccain campaign did in 2008. >> by the way, in the last presidential election, some 400,000 early mail-in ballots were thrown out. mostly for is he simple mistakes things like postage and forgetting to sign it mail-in ballots do tend to skew more toward g.o.p. voters. shep? >> shepard: first debate a week fr
the obama white house. thanks to both of you for being here tonight. >> thanks, reverend. >> richard, it's got to be bad if fox news isn't buying your line. >> you know, chris wallace was asking really reasonable questions. it's flot just about specifics. it's to try and explain the real costs, the facts behind the tax policy. so even if you set aside the proposition about whether you are winning or losing, because all of these things can be temporary at the beginning of the campaign, but getting to the details in a factual way is important. if you cannot boil down your message as candidate, never mind about a bumper sticker but a sound bite, how you express it to voters that's exactly the problem that they are in. the details are difficult but difficult not to explain but difficult for middle class voters. >> i had the same difficulty in junior high school trying to make 5 plus 3 equal 9. the math isn't there. that's part of the problem. but megan, paul ryan talked to a wisconsin radio host and said why don't you get into the specifics on fox news sunday. let me play what he said. >> i
to have a military that's so strong no one wants to test it. you see, you want to -- >> president obama and mitt romney both making the case to veterans in virginia today. the present talking about ending our trillioll war eaventually, and his opponent talking about ronald reagan. joining us now, john stanton, washington bureau chief at "buzz ed" and it's been way too long since we've had you on show. congratulations on your move,vy way, how is "buzz feed"? >> it's awe? >> one of the things y did nd cntis greyhound bused down there, and sort of went out of your way to talk to regular on the street folks who were not necessarily getting, having their opinions plundered by pundits. when you're doing sort of "man on the street" talking to people about polics, do people ever talk about the wars? >> thedo. tag,tirl was in savannah and talking to church people that were feeding the working poor and homeless people. there were a lot of veterans there. some of the people i talked to on the bus were veterans. they feel like their plight as the working poor in this inoue areonis really president
, both sides had their surrogates out yesterday. mr. obama's side reminded everybody, look, governor romney has done a couple dozen debates over the last year or so. he's really good at it. so they're trying to tamp down expectations. then you got chris christie going out there saying, i think mitt romney is going to have an extraordinarily great wednesday night. everything is going to turn upside down. wait until thursday morning. everybody is going to be talking about how -- and i'm paraphrasing -- mitt romney kicked some butt. >> gretchen: it's so important to see these two men face-to-face on a stage together because look at your screen now. this is how we've seen them for the last couple of months. they might be in the same state, but they're not together. they're not on the same stage together. so really what you're learning about the candidates is what they're saying individually. not against each other. not necessarily being asked the same question at the same time. not being able to take each other to task and say, but wait a minute, you said this or you said that. i think t
of muscling on both sides. i think it affected his relationship with barack obama for the first few years of his presidency, but i think now that they've sorted things out between themselves and i think he said, look, he loves being center stage. the clinton global initiative is huge. it's attended by almost as many world leaders as the u.n. general assembly. you have a guy who really isn't president but for all intents and purposes is a very influential world leader. somebody said to me, who needs who more? does barack obama need bill clinton more or does bill clinton need barack obama more? i think they need each other. bill clinton, the inflew enser. i think for barack obama there's no more effective, articulate defender of his right to be re-elected right now than bill clinton. >> okay. >> so along the same lines is a new poll, quinnipiac, "new york times" poll that shows mr. obama is up by 10 points in the state of ohio over mitt romney. is that for the efforts of obama's great campaigning or does it have more to do with bill clinton and that widely admired speech he gave at the dnc?
.j. lang got fed by the refs. even president obama tweeted. nfl fans on both sides of the aisle hope the revs lockout is settled soon. this is after a disputed field goal gave the baltimore ravens a one point win over the new england patriots and a series of botched calls and misapplied rules that have driven coaches, players, and fans crazy. all this because of a labor dispute between the nfl and its regular referees that began when the league locked out the refs in june. >> reporter: the referees want more money asking more than the nfl's offer to increase the salaries from $149,000 a year to $189,000. compare that to the median nfl players salary, $770,000 a year. it's important to remember the average nfl playing career is only 3.5 years and most of the refs have other careers so these aren'tful-time jobs for them. >> reporter: the nfl wants to make the refs full time and to add more refs so the average referee would make less money. they want to move them to from a pension system to a 401k. but in the context of a business that brings in $9.5 billion a year, seems solvable. red
times. past debates show romney and obama have to worry about cut away shots that are less than flattering. in the past both candidates have come across as irritable, patronizing or disengaged. this was chris christie's advice to the candidates yesterday. >> what you do is go out and be yourself. and people either like it or don't. if they don't, they are going to vote for somebody else. not a tragedy. no one dies. >> finally speaking of debates, there was a barn burner last night in massachusetts where scott brown and democratic challenger elizabeth warren faced off in a debate. moderated by nbc's david gregory. it was tense from the outset. >> if you're going to comment on my record, i would at least have you refer to it -- excuse me. i'm not a student in your classroom. please let me respond, okay? >> that was an echo of a quip brown used in 2010 when he told martha kwaurkly i'm not in your courtroom, i'm not a defendant. i the two fought over whether elizabeth warren used her native american heritage to gain employment advantage. >> i listed myself as native american. i was
is to repeal obama care because it represents the worst of both worlds. i had a feeling there would be mixed reaction, so let me get into it. it weakens medicare for today's seniors and puts it at risk for the next generation. >> well, not too popular there. now we've got the poll that is put concrete numbers behind those boos. a new poll by "the washington post" and the kaiser family foundation shows that medicare trails only the economy as the top voting issue in the swing states of florida, ohio, and virginia. and among voters who say medicare is extremely important to their vote, obama swamps romney by, get this, 13 points. when voters in those states were asked a similar question, woman they trusted to deal with the medicare program, obama again trumps romney in all the polls. in ohio obama leads romney on medicare by 19. in florida, 15. in virginia, 13. other polls have shown president obama's advantage on medicare has grown significantly since ryan joined the ticket. so let's go back to this again, trying to figure this out. he bought into a guy who was known primarily for this vouche
. but really it's from both sides. i'm more liberal than obama when it comes to a lot of social issues. i'm certainly more conservative than romney when it comes to dollars and cents. i think that's where the majority of people in this country fall in. and who's being -- which party is representing what i think are the majority of americans that are fiscally responsible and socially accepting? well, that's just the philosophy i'm going to argue i continue to argue they have a resume' that not only suggests can i do this job but i can really do a good job at it. >> you know, there's a poll they saw in ohio in which your presence turns a one-point lead by president obama into a seven-point lead for the president. so gary, would it be gratifying at least for you if you just ended up being a spoiler in this election? >> well, i hope to get labelled as a spoiler. that would just be more attention for what i'm having to say. what i'm having to say is look, let's not bomb iran. that would be a third voice on stage. let's get out of afghanistan tomorrow. bring the troops home. that would be a thi
to "hardball" and to the "sideshow." well, the campaigns for both mitt romney and president obama are trying to tamp expectations leading into tomorrow's debate while playing up the debating skills, of course, of the other candidate. one of romney's biggest surrogates went a bit rogue this weekend on "the daily show." take note. >> here is the great news for republicans, we have a candidate who is going to do extraordinarily well on wednesday night. >> oh, my [ bleep ], we got a runner, we got a runner! apparently only chris christie did not get the memo his party sucks at this. >> it's the restart of the campaign and i think you will see the numbers move back in another direction and the whole race will turn upside down. >> what you are you doing? if romney fails to meet those heavy expectations, he's going to lose the general election and that's going to leave open 26 -- oh. the jersey is strong in this one. >> in political language the governor there was sandbagging. actually he was sandbagging. he should have been low balling, that's playing up the skills of the other guy claiming you ha
sounds like he objects to obama care on a much broader -- >> but, michael, the central issue is the individual mandate. >> that's right. >> and he's having it both ways on that, isn't he? >> well, sure. he's saying i like the individual mandate on the state level and i don't like it on the federal level. >> right. >> don't forget, this underlying philosophy that earlier this week he said we have care for the uninsured, they can go to the emergency rooms. a few years ago he said we can't have freeloaders going to the emergency room. there is, michael, i think some slicing and dicing he's trying to do. don't forget, two days ago he admits that the president actually has not raised taxes on the middle class. then yesterday he says to people attacking the president, and he says, middle class people, i'm going do all these things, but don't expect a big tax break. the guy has got to stick to one story. >> good luck with that, karen. dana, i know you were at mr. romney's event at the american legion today because you tweeted a brilliant picture of a rolls-royce outside with a romne
, of course, the election. both president obama and governor romney are seasoned debaters and experts say neither are prone to making major gaffes. but if there is one thing that history has taught us when it comes to presidential debates, expect the unexpected. anderson cooper. >> until this week it has been a rough presidential election to be sure. now the candidates can't stop complimenting each other's debating skills. while they try to lower expectations, one of mitt romney's supporters is predicting a big might for the republican. turn an entrepreneur's dream... ♪ into a scooter that talks to the cloud? ♪ or make 70,000 trades a second... ♪ reach one customer at a time? ♪ how do you help doctors turn billions of bytes of shared information... ♪ into a fifth anniversary of remission? ♪ or turn 30-million artifacts... ♪ into a high-tech masterpiece? ♪ whatever your business challenge, dell has the technology and services to help you solve it. up high! ok. don't you have any usefull apps on that thing? who do you think i am, quicken loans? ♪ at quicken loans, our amaz
. he points to the obama administration ideology being at fault both before the attack and afterwards. that's important to understand. before the attack we clearly didn't suspect it was coming. that's due to an intelligence failure in the sense we looked for information and couldn't get it or if the ideological reason applied they didn't think we needed to ask for the information. al qaeda has been defeated, the war on terror is over, libya is a great success, what could go wrong. obviously it did go wrong. but if the administration from the top down isn't processing reality, this is the kind of tragedy you. bill: you are pinpointing the ideology. so this was their mental thinking about the condition of the arab world or that region or libya specifically do you think? >> i think very broadly. it goes to president obama's view of america's place in the world. it's a corollary to what he thinks america' domestic structure looks like. it made him in the case of libya and kay row and elsewhere -- libya and cairo and elsewhere in the region to see the islamists' rise. it was a brother and
to break down the details. plus, on the eve of the first presidential debate both president obama and governor mitt romney are hard at work on their final preps. we'll have an update from the campaign trail next. gregg: there are plans to hold peace talk with the taliban and they've now collapsed, this as nato commander's try to find a new way to boost stability in the region as forces begin to head home. national security correspondent jennifer griffin has the details from the pentagon. how seriously did the u.s. military take these peace talks with the taliban. >> not very. this was essentially a state-department-led idea from with some backing from the white house and the president's national security advisers over at the white house when richard holbrooke was still alive as ambassador and envoy to pakistan he backed the idea because many military commander's believed you could not shoot yourself out of this war, out of the war in afghanistan. the pentagon also never believed that they could negotiate he with elements loyal to mullah omar or the a cane the aquani network. the p
